In Conversation: Deco Radio

The most beautiful radios ever made


Art Deco Mumbai Trust is pleased to invite you to participate in the Live Zoom webinar titled ‘In conversation- Deco Radio’, to be held on 14th March, 2021 from 5.00 p.m.- 6.30 p.m. IST.


Join us for this virtual event, to explore the untold story of famous industrial designers who used new materials and mass production in the 1930s and 1940s to create beautiful coloured streamlined radios. This started a trend that brought the world-wide spread of modern Art Deco styling into homes. The advent of the small, mantel or tabletop radio in 1930 gave a huge impetus to the spread of radio, not only allowing multiple sets in the home, but changing the listener from family to individual.

A noted expert on Art Deco radios with one of the leading radio collections in the world, Dr. Peter Sheridan will share his expertise and passion with a visually-captivating illustrated talk featuring some of the rarest and most beautiful radios ever made, followed by an engaging conversation on the Deco influence on Industrial design with Dr. Mustansir Dalvi. The event will conclude with a live Q&A session with the participants.
